Font Table Viewer - feature request


Will the font table viewer eventually have tools for UAT on font version changes? Like reporting on changes between glyphs. Changes by letter frequency/likelihood of reflow? Say I download a new version of a font, I want to know what changes have been made between versions and how they might affect my legacy documents.

At the moment the visual comparison is useful but a report on differences would be amazing.

Comparing the design/metrics of two fonts is more a task for the MergeGlyphs tool.

Oh great - does that tool have functionality now?

You need to open both fonts in Glyphs and save as .glyphs files. Then you can compare the two.
